I am glad of the privilege to be numbered among those who bear testimony to their release from bondage through Christian Science. I was suffering from female trouble, said by the doctor to be a malignant condition, and the only hope left was another operation. I had undergone a very serious one eight months before this, and was "none the better, but rather grew worse." I had reached man's extremity, which proved to be God's opportunity. It is certain I would have died but for the saving power of divine Principle. My experience was like that of one whose case is given in Science and Health (p. 382): "The treatises I had read and the medicines I had taken only abandoned me to more hopeless suffering and despair. ... Mortal mind needed to be set right;" and as our Leader tells us on page 370, "The body improves under the same regimen which spiritualizes the thought." I began to have treatment June 22, 1910, and since that time Christian Science alone has met my every need. My healing has been permanent, and I have not been in bed a day since I took up the study of this Science.

I am so happy and thankful for this saving truth that I cannot worthily express my gratitude.
